Singer is moving out of her council house


Susan Boyle has splashed out £350,000 on a new home in Blackburn, West Lothian.

The property boasts 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and electronic security gates.

It is also only yards from the council house where the Britain’s Got Talent runner-up has lived since she was a child with her cat Pebbles.

Susan, 49, recently bought that home for £35,600.

‘It’s going to be a wrench to leave her council home, but Susan cant wait to move in with Pebbles,’ her brother Gerry, 56, tells the Sunday People.

‘She has an allowance of £500 a week for general living expenses, but will be given special access to her fortune to pay for her new home and furnishings.

‘She has been window shopping for leather sofas. But her priority is to select a special cat bedroom for Pebbles who will have a top-of-the-range blanket and accessories.’

Susan has an estimated £10million fortune, which her management are thought to be looking after on her behalf.
